Nice job with the lyrics. I have that song filed in the back of my mind in a folder called "Bad 70s bubblegum" right next to The Partridge Family's "I think I love you".

Now for the real test:

Can you do "Paper Roses"?

Oh yes... I had that Marie Osmond album. It was through her that I discovered Patsy Cline. (not that patsy did paper roses, though... I don't think she did)

I realized the way your eyes deceived me
with tender looks that I mistook for love
So take away the flowers that you gave me
and send the kind that you remind me of
paper roses, paper roses
oh how real those roses seem to be
but they're only imitation,
like your imitation love for me
I thought that you would be a perfect lover
You seemed so full of sweetness at the start
But like a big red rose that's made of paper
There isn't any sweetness in your heart
paper roses, paper roses
Oh how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation like you imitation love for me
